Publisher Comments:

With the Beauty Killer Gretchen Lowell locked away behind bars once again, Archie Sheridan — a Portland police detective and nearly one of her victims — can finally rest a little easier. Meanwhile, the rest of the city of Portland is in crisis. Heavy rains have flooded the Willamette River, and several people have drowned in the quickly rising waters. Or at least that's what they thought until the medical examiner discovers that the latest victim didn't drown: She was poisoned before she went into the water. Soon after, three of those drownings are also proven to be murders. Portland has a new serial killer on its hands, and Archie and his task force have a new case.

Reporter Susan Ward is chasing this story of a new serial killer with gusto, but she's also got another lead to follow for an entirely separate mystery: The flooding has unearthed a skeleton, a man who might have died more than sixty years ago, the last time Portland flooded this badly, when the water washed away an entire neighborhood and killed at least fifteen people.

With Archie following the bizarre trail of evidence and evil deeds to catch a killer and possibly regain his life, and Susan Ward close behind, Chelsea Cain — one of today's most talented suspense writers — launches the next installment of her bestselling series with an electric thriller.

Review:

"High-octane...quick-paced...frightening....The world that Cain creates is as dark and ominous as ever....This is the mood that Cain has mastered: the dread of knowing that something is off...It is what presses her readers onward, pulses racing." The New York Times Book Review

Review:

"The Night Season has headlong pacing, endearing characters, twisted humor, and scalpel-sharp descriptions of murder and mayhem. It grabs you like a deadly undertow and doesn't let go." Parade magazine

Review:

"The suspense is plentiful and Cains evocation of the gloomy atmosphere and Portland setting is superb...excellent...the new queen of serial-killer fiction." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"Cain easily weaves the history of the real-life Vanport flood with her trademark heart-stopping moments, and fans will be pleased to see the series flourishing withoughy Gretchen on every page." Publishers Weekly (A Top 10 Mystery of the Year)

Review:

"Chelsea Cain has a scary talent for creating twisted characters...deliciously creepy." Fresh Fiction

Review:

"Superb...Cain pinned readers to their seats with a unique mix of horror, black humor, and psychological tension. This time she adds another arrow to her narrative quiver: the interplay between landscape and mood....Terrifying." Booklist (starred review)

Synopsis:

He captured the Beauty Killer, one of the most deranged serial killers in the country. Now, Portland police detective Archie Sheridan faces a different kind of killer — a brutal rain season that has flooded the Willamette River, claiming several lives. As water levels rise, so does the fear. Because some of the victims didn't drown — they were murdered.

The first body contains a rare poison. Three others prove to be murders as well. And with each gruesome discovery the medical examiner uncovers, Archie begins to realize he has not escaped his nightmares — even with his deadliest enemy behind bars. The flood has washed up old skeletons from the past. And a ruthless new serial killer rules the night...

About the Author

Chelsea Cain is the New York Times bestselling author of Evil at Heart, Sweetheart, and Heartsick. Both Heartsick and Sweetheart were listed in Stephen King's Top Ten Books of the Year in Entertainment Weekly. Chelsea lived the first few years of her life on an Iowa commune, then grew up in Bellingham, WA, where the infamous Green River killer was "the boogieman" of her youth. The true story of the Green River killer's capture was the inspiration for the story of Gretchen and Archie. Cain lives in Portland with her husband and daughter.

Gail Anderson, August 31, 2012 (view all comments by Gail Anderson)
If you've read Chelsea Cain's first 3 novels, you're in for a treat with this one! Even if you haven't, it is worth picking it up. Set in Portland, OR, this novel gives one a great feel for how long and wet the winters here can be. Though we still hear a little about Gretchen, this novel focuses more on a new cast of characters and has a historical piece to it, too. As with all of Cain's novels, the story is compelling and creepy, but also includes moments of dark humor. Love it!
